Fishers Cottage is a delightful timber framed Grade II Listed property, which is thought to date in part, from the early 16thCentury. It is set back from the road in the centre of the village only a very short distance from St Ethelbert's church.
The property has rendered and painted elevations, beneath a steeply pitched tile roof and in 2002 a wonderfully sympathetic extension was added at the rear. There is ample evidence that the timber framing was in the original structure with a massive inglenook fireplace found in the sitting room. Unusually Fishers Cottage also has two bread ovens, each associated with one of the two prominent chimneys.
The ground floor comprises kitchen/breakfast room, the aforementioned sitting room, study, utility room and shower room, with the first floor offering three bedrooms, bathroom and dressing room, accessed via two independent staircases.
The garden is a most attractive element of the property and has been thoughtfully landscaped and includes a variety of plants as well as a greenhouse, vegetable and soft fruit cage, herb garden, fruit trees and chicken run. There is a garage and various sheds as well as a timber building which has been used as a home office.
